Poems from Oriental Languages: Dark Aspect and Prospect

(Turkish—Sixteenth Century)

Translation in Dublin University Magazine

AH! cease to shroud the radiance of those cheeks,

Those eyes that pale the lightnings of the opal!

An eclipse of the sun for days and weeks

Forebodes disaster in Constantinople!
